Soil Basics for Organic Gardening & Natural Landscaping

Saturday, October 15, 2016, 10:00am - 12:00pm
Contact or; 360-737-1160

Presented by Caroline Swansey, Yacolt Mountain Farm and Nursery LLC

Soil is often taken for granted. However, soil is the medium from which life starts and where life ends. Soils are incredibly diverse and complex. One does not have to understand all of the complexities of soils to be a great gardener or land steward. My definition of a healthy soil is one which gives plants the ability to grow at a natural rate and fight off diseases and pests without the need for chemical pesticides. Our focus will be on a few key concepts; the most important building blocks and the most practical basics to understanding soils. We will discuss soil science, practical methods to assess our soil, make observations about the health of our soils and use this understanding to guide our gardening practices.

Part of the class may occur in the gardens. Please dress for the weather. 

Location: CASEE Center, Building B, Room 205
